Getting Your Groove Back

It has been 11 weeks since Nora was born. Zach and I have been taking walks to get a little exercise, but I have yet to do a real work out since Nora was born.

At first my excuses were about being sore, tired, Nora not napping long enough or at the right times for me to get one in and on and on the list goes.

What I have decided is that I am afraid. I'm afraid to learn just how weak my muscles are, how out of shape my cardio system has become. My other big inhibitor is that my very favorite exercise is cycling, which I have read is not safe for me to take Nora on until she is 5 or 6 months old. Same for running.

So here's my question: how did you mommies get your groove back after baby?

I'll let you know when I find out!

Sorry, I know that isn't any help whatsoever. But all moms struggle with this and not all of us figure it out right away.

You'll get there!

start out with "baby steps", you can do playful excercises with Nora now that will help you begin strengthening those muscles back up. You would be suprised at how well these work. Plus it makes it seem more fun than just working out. I'm sure you can find some useful sights online with a little digging on this. Good luck with it and have fun :)
